Kraus Musicology Collection

The Kraus Collection is a group of 148 musical pamphlets collected by Italian musicologist Alessandro Kraus (1853-1931). The pamphlets cover areas as diverse as the history and science of music, instrument catalogs, composer and performer biographies, ethnomusicology, and Gregorian chant. Languages represented in the collection include Italian, German, English, and French. Many of these pamphlets are rare, and offer a fascinating glimpse into the study of music in the 19th and early 20th century.
